How it works

Casa chapi that is

Funded by the association of U.S. Alpaca breeders known as Quechua Benefit. Home base is Hillsboro, Oregon. 89% of donations are directed to their efforts. [not bad,ehh]
The organization derives no benefit from their efforts, other than knowing that fellow alpaca ranchers/breeders have an improved life.....that's it.
O K, so, for two weeks out of the year QB transforms the school into a medical/dental/optical clinic. [yes, there is such a thing as a portable dental chair, but you nor I would ever see one in our lives normally] we try to organize the flow of anxious people who might not see another health practitioner for a year.
